Godzilla Lords Over Doomed American City In Fiery One Sheet
As much as I thoroughly enjoyed the initial Godzilla trailer, for the mood it set, I think we’re just about due for a new clip with more shots of the monster in the title. Maybe the existence of this new poster suggests the full trailer is on its way?
Godzilla Producers Plan Graphic Novel Prequel Titled 'Awakening'
I actually like the idea, so long as Legendary is able to find a way to get audiences to check this out. Movies used to come with companion pieces all the time, though they’d largely be photographs from the picture, or interviews with the cast and crew. But a separate story that deepens the movie-going experience? That’s a cool way to access a film.

Bryan Cranston Roars In New Behind The Scenes Look At Godzilla
It's hard to gather much from any of the on-set footage that is shown in the ET clip, but one thing does appear to be for certain: Bryan Cranston's character is going to be severely injured at one point in the movie. You can clearly see him many times throughout the clip having his head wrapped in bandages and lying down on a gurney being ready to be taken to a hospital.

Drop In On Godzilla With This Striking New Poster
What I really like about this image, along with the muted haze of reds and grays, is just how much depth is put on display. We’re close enough to see details of one of these soldiers, but then we can also see others falling very far in the background, and they’re all headed down to a wide expanse of landscape that can barely be seen through all the smoke and fog. It’s this attention to detail, along with similar shots in the teaser, that actually get me excited about watching this movie in 3D, which rarely happens these days
